Yes. I saw the pricing and just thought "fuck off". I might have gone for a £77 standing ticket if it got me to the front, but not when the first third of the venue is closed off unless you pay an extra £35!

Well, whatever Billy is paying James and Jimmy is good value for money. I believe these two have managed to polish a turd.

I got a ticket too. I haven't got the stamina for standing tickets, so I got a club seat in area S8. It looks quite near the front on the seating plan. I hope Billy and James are going to at least act like they're into it. I'm really excited though, this is a once in a lifetime chance.

 

I hope they play Jellybelly, Here Is No Why, and Thru the Eyes of Ruby. Bonus points for Machina songs.

The setlist for current gigs isn't what I'd hoped from a reunion tour. Greatest hits aren't the same as best songs.

Celebrating the first five albums but nothing from Adore? I think my list would be something like:

 

Rhinoceros

Daydream

Hummer

Rocket

Disarm

1979

Here Is No Why

Thru the Eyes of Ruby

By Starlight

Perfect

Shame

The Sacred and Profane

Speed Kills

Stand Inside Your Love

 

Encore: Farewell and Goodnight (guest appearance by D'arcy :lol:)

Yeah, that’s pretty much the best spot to be sat. It’s where I was when I saw them there in 2000. You’re going to be as close as as anyone in the general admission standing if nothing else!

I of the Mourning should be on there and also Age of innocence. I saw them on the Machina tour and I of the Mourning was utterly brilliant live.

@Rockboy I know it's a controversial opinion, but Machina is my favourite album. It has vision and atmosphere, and I love all the extra little musical touches in the background: the pianos, those dreamy synths. I love everything about it.
